The first ever UK Microsoft Innovation Academy Workshop took place on the 10th Dec 09 at Daresbury Innovation Centre. It was delivered by Jyoti Banerjee. I tweeted the full workshop, a two-day event squeezed into one-day, and my tweets are captured on the following report, which you can read on-line or download.
Whilst I had reservations about the value of the workshop prior to participation, I was proven wrong during the afternoon session. As far as I was concerned, it was a day well spent getting a valuable insight into developing the right business model for edocr.com.
Few quotes from fellow participants:
“Interseting day, very useful, covered strategic issues that will have a big impact on our approach to the market”, Aldo de Leonibus, Director of Inventya.
“Useful and timely overview covering a variety of issues around the value chain and approaching new markets”, Katrina Delargy, Managing Director, Aventura.
I sincerely hope Microsoft will continue to offer these workshops to high growth businesses across the country.
